Domaine Michel Juillot Mercurey Clos des Barraults Premiere Cru 2009

Member Review by JoshuaChrist:

On the Nose: Good peach, citrus and floral aromas.Taste: Good acidity, good weight, harmonious overall. Peach, pear, lime, with a dash of vanilla cream (minimal oak though).Pairing: I paired it with a simple halibut dish, which in retrospect the wine pretty much demolished. There was enough oomph and acidity to the wine, to try some bolder flavors. Overall: Not a bad white burgundy. I really enjoyed it. The balance, acidity and pleasant aromas and taste, did it for me.

In Mercurey, a village nestled in Burgundy on the famous Côte Chalonnaise, the Michel Julliot Estate, which has existed for four generations, cultivates 30 hectares of vines producing a large selection of the best "climats" Mercurey has to offer as well as several Côte de Beaune crus. The quality of a wine is the result of the straightforwardness and the brightness of its color, the delicacy and the clarity of its aromas, the intensity, the complexity, and the persistancy of its flavors. While all of our wines remain true to this noble conception of quality, they stem from the successful alliance of an acclaimed grape variety, a unique "terroir " and exceptional people. Read less
